The huge assortment of characters, stories, costumes, and other aspects of Dragon Ball lore cannot hide how shallow and uninspired the fighting mechanics are. There is no depth to your actions, making it a slow-paced race to be the first person to build up your ki power, which quickly becomes monotonous. With the wide assortment of deep and varied fighting games already on the market, it’s impossible to ignore the many faults present in this often-dull anime-inspired brawler.
The foundation of the game - the battle system - isn't very fun, and that sinks the whole experience. I would have really loved to get the full Dragon Ball Z experience with this game, as it is the most inclusive entry in the series to date. However, between the clunky combat and the whacked out camera, I just can't recommend Raging Blast to anyone. It's too bad, as this game could have been great, but for now, it is just a missed opportunity.
Raging Blast had all the makings of an amazing Dragon Ball game but comes up short in all the places that count. Sure, all the great characters are present and there are enough extras to keep fans wanting to jump into a tournament but the gameplay just falls flat to make the battles too awkward. There have been great Dragon Ball games before but, sadly, this one does not qualify.
